compassionate city. and i think our police department has been compassionate. i think our fire department has been compassionate. but also we have to make sure that we are really aggressively making sure that folks are not breaking the law in terms of selling drugs, in terms of using drugs, in terms of just the kinds of things that happen when you break the law. i mean, people who are hanging out, they're just hanging out. there is a.m. nothing wrong with hanging out. i hung out a lot. kids hang out. young people hang out. homeless people hang out. the question is when someone makes it, you know, more than just hanging out and it messes it up for everyone else. so, we have to make sure as a city that we deal with those things appropriately, but we also offer alternatives so that we're not just pushing the homeless issue from one place to the next. but we're actually making sure we're taking care of people and offering them alternatives. so, it's going to be a challenging issue and an ongoing issue and one that i'm committed to working with the mayor's office to help address and manage. >> wha
to do to make our city better. >> where do you place yourself on the political spectrum? are you more progressive, centrist, or more on the conservative side? >> that's a really challenging question because, i mean, throughout the campaign i made sure that i didn't define myself as either because i think that what it does is in a lot of ways, it divides our city. i think clearly when you have a desire to run, you have a desire to serve. you really care about what happens in san francisco. you just have a different way of which you believe we should go about doing that. and i just think that i don't necessarily see myself in one particular category because i have different feelings about different situations based on my various experiences of growing up in the city. and, so, my, my, my commitment to san francisco trumps any ideaology i might have. i mean, i'm going to need to make decisions that impact people's lives. i have to make sure that i'm being responsible in those decisions and i can't let ideology get in the way of that. >> it seems the city is dealing with complicated issues
it to the city or whatever the relevant public entity is to own it and operate it in the future. or no. 2, we can retain some property, but only if we are to fulfill a first obligation and we have terminated -- interpret that to mean an obligation. the state department of finances has indicated to us in other conversations that they this i that we should transfer other obligations like property management obligation of the city. when i'm talking about retaining something, i'm talking about a development obligation. then the third, if the property doesn't fall into those two then it has to be sold. there is only an exception to that and the law which is that if it's a property that it's a very narrow exception if it was a property that would identify a specific use for a redevelopment plan, then in that case it has to be transferred to the city. i have been keeping those, we have kept those in mind as we have discussed these properties internally and physical figuring out what the best plan is for all of these and we'll be producing these to you today. first the transbay parcels and what we are t

and we've seen the largest positive impacts happening at the city level. here at the local level, we have a unique opportunity to reevent and reimagine the opportunity we can have between our city residents and government, we've seen open data used in practice already and we can see how it can accomplish all of the positive benefits i mentioned, whether it's to help publish health scores on their website, helping residents making healthier choice, or make sf rec park to help people make picnic reservations or using your smart phone, all the examples i just mentioned are real examples of how open data can improve the lives of our city resident, further fuel economic growth here in san francisco. specifically, this ordinance will enumerate open data numerical standards, it creates a sense of accountability and certain for the public and entrepreneurial community, it creates city staff and agencies to interact with the public about relevant data set and is the priority of certain data set and is creates for the first time in the nation a strategy for residents of san francisco to access thei
properties have been in particular prapts properties r that are transferred to the city for governmental purpose there's no plan after that. that's a collaboration between the agency because the agency has the experience and the resources to really fully understand the deposition of the assets in the community in the long run and the city department or other authorities those assets are transferred to. so again, there's no final plan, you know, to transfer them to the city and a number of things could happen but that's not the purpose of this long-term plan. i want to open it up for commissioners. first any questions about the long-term property plan >> yeah. that i are they just, you know, wanted to make sure we should involve all the community when giving the properties back to the city and especially in the western edition. and in the other thing i have a question for you. in the jewish museum you have a right on the top he, you know, under the you know the separate preschooler what are we talking about where the proceeds are going to >> you said the proceeds we're not getting anyth
: cities and municipalities across the united states are now facing this funding gap, between projected revenue and projected expenses, as they strive to maintain water quality and meet demand. new york is the most densely populated city in the u.s. and over 40 million tourists visit the city every year. the 1.3 billion gallons of water required every day are delivered by a system of extraordinary scale and complex engineering. man: water is essential to the economic viability of new york city. reliable infrastructure and reliable delivery of water is a must. you have to reinvest in the infrastructure every single minute to keep it current. hurwitz: we have the stock exchange, we have the united nations -- failure can have a dramatic impact on the nation, and even internationally. so there's a really keen awareness that you always have to be fixing the system. things corrode, they rust. they get to where you turn them on and nothing happens. but it is so totally used in every nook and cranny, that making any accommodation to shut it down, to do something to it, is very difficult. narrat
in this area and from there, i went to city college then i went to cal and received my bachelors in civil engineer and worked there for about a decision that's not where my passion was so i left the job and went back to school and never turned back. that's what i've been doing pretty much all my life in the classroom or working on organizations that will focus on children and families. that's a little bit about my bathed >> born and raised san franciscan good for you. why did you choose to stay in the city >> i love the city. i'm very passionate about the city. i made the decision to focus on children and the families. i keep on asking the same question when i was younger why would i want to focus my efforts in san francisco. are there other places in the world where i could make a difference. i'm talking about the late 50s and 60s. there was at that time, a lot of population coming in from china. it was an opportunity for me to help people that were struggling in awe second amendment and getting used to things over here. >> what motivated you to get involved in politics. >> part of my

[laughter] we saw real estate values dropping precipitously. as far as we were concerned, that was a good thing because it enabled us to move into market street. the city had encouraged us to do so, too, as they were very much interested in revitalizing market, 6th and market, which is essentially part of the tenderloin. we thought there were a lot of opportunities there. we know something about making urban environments vital. given the present political move, people are open to new ideas. that is true across the country. our burners are being asked to come into centers of various cities for aetna. -- right now. whehowever, as soon as things gt better, they

of every city employees. this mistakingly represents this as something that they are being taken away from their duties. it is part of their duty and any city employee who is asked for a record is a requirement and part of their job duties to provide a job response. and putting this in a report saying that they are taken away from the regular duties it is simply a ploy and the record request to something and it is a legitimate legal request from a citizen of san francisco. and the control and the supervision or a record and not getting it. and it is my own experience after chasing him for two solid years and going through the city attorney's office and a petition that the supervisor of records to continue to records and those were the very records used to find him in violation of the regulations. and i did not blame him. and i would lie about the existence which he did. and i even denied, answering whether they did exist or not, when they responded or the company requestor had a legal document saying that you should have it signed by the respondent. >> agenda item 6, items for future meeti

the city to include resident concerns and community process in their final disposition plans. that's part one. part two is getting back to kind of the commentary that i just had that yes, i do think that we need -- we here, the commission, obviously here as the community is concerned, we have written commentary that was heard today and verbal commentary today and what we need to do is formalize again that collaboration with the city so we can create a public process around final disposition. i think people saw on their november 25 date, that date is sort of a soft dead /hraoeub. deadline. it says we know in the future what needs to happen. they're transferring to the city for government purpose, or we need to sell it. we've got between 12 to 14 months with first sort of soft date in there all the way out to 2025, i think was the final date i saw on some of these documents to say we are going to dispose of this property and the city then has it and are going to do something with it. so we have all that time to have a public process for what that is. i don't think we need to encumber our co
. the human services agency and other hope and city staff should will impaneled the community. the community concerns that have been expressed are valid and i respect their position and respect what sxhooen r supervisor cowen is being asked to do. i - we have a clear need for more shelter beds. and we are experiencing a disheartening wave of evictions. i've seen the statistics from the sheriff's department and people are ended up on the streets but especially now more than ever because there being a evicted. a huge number are african-american and they remain in the bayview and western edition where we have to provide support and services and provide save shelters. one of the concerns of many of the folks who from the homeless community has expressed concern about shelters. i want to make sure we don't move in a distribution and not provide a comprehensive approach to make sure those shelters are safe but the people being served are getting the services adequate from the homeless situation into a long-term more stable situation. homelessness is a citywide issue. i have an obligation to treat
at the in point at 62.7. if you noticed as i mentioned earlier, the city plan is not that different in age and male female distribution. so you will notice that the factor one is much closer at 93 percent. you would not expect to see much changes. if you notice the average length of stay is at 5.9. there is about 1.75 spread between high and low and the blue line of skilled nursing is the most variable of them all of moving on to the cost per day, what you will notice is the current inpatient cost per day is about 62.43. it's an annual cost of 2.5 years. this is not unexpected and quite reasonable trend for this period of time. moving on to page 23. there is nothing as you look at the graph and you will see it pretty flat. the only thing to draw out here is that the growth is about 1.3 percent. there is a slight growth in er rate of 4.6 percent and surgical cost and yet nothing above trend. lastly looking at the procedures per thousand, again, we have the issue of the other 21,000 of the 33778 are other. and we have to work with uhc to see what goes into that very low dollar area. i
crisis and every neighborhood in the city is experiencing that we must protect the diversity of our city and make sure everyone who wants to live here and has had a stake in the city continues to live in san francisco. many of you have heard will the eviction of the lee family where two seniors and their adult daughter after living in their homes for 3 decades were evicted that has to stop. now, some months before that i had a meeting with the lee families and advocates and affordable housing and tenant activists we realized under the ellis act we can't stop ellis acts but implement other policies to stop eviction. based on recently data the number of ellis evictions has risen just in the past year we've seen a one hundred 4 had evictions from that and the highest there rate xashd to other kinds of eviction. the code today would allow tenants who have been 90 in their places more than 10 years to receive priority funded by the city of san francisco. the mayor's office of houser and a community development will administer this program will balance our affordable housing nodes. this legisl
devastated the city. how do we avoid that kind of problem. how can we reduce fire hazard? >> the construction was a lot different. we don't expect what we had then. we want to make sure with the gas heaters that the gas is shut off. >> if you shut it off you are going to have no hot water or heat. be careful not to shut it off unless you smell gas. >> absolutely because once you do shut it off you should have the utility company come in and turn it back on. here is a mock up of a gas hear the on a house. where would we find the gas meter? >> it should be in your garage. everyone should be familiar with where the gas meter is. >> one of the tools is a wrench, a crescent wrench. >> yes. the crescent wrench is good and this is a perfect example of how to have it so you can loosen it up and use it when you need it. >> okay. let's go inside to talk about fire safety. many of the issues here relate to fire, for example, we have a little smoke detector and i see you brought one here, a carbon monoxide smoke detector. >> this is a combination of smoke and carbon monoxide detector. they are required i
